Dolls.  I love dolls.  I've collected dolls.  I've restored dolls.  I've made dolls.  I've dressed dolls.  This photo of dolls delighted me.  Consequently, I didn't stray far from the original for my interpretation.

I like your interpretation better than the original photo Nellie - it's wonderful. I've said it before and I'll say it again - you are such a talented lady!

Is this the first time you've shown this? I kept wondering what was going to come of the picture of a table full of dolls. That is Cool!
